Action, Drama
From the trash heap of history comes the more or less true story of Uday Saddam Hussein, mad son of the mad dictator, and his unfortunate decoy double, an Iraqi army officer named Latif Yahia — both played to the hilt by British actor Dominic Cooper. As Michael Thomas’ sleaze-loving screenplay would have it, Latif is a relatively moral man forced to enact a loathsome role. Uday the Black Prince, meanwhile, possesses Jerry Lewis hair, Freddie Mercury teeth, and the blood lust of the Emperor Caligula. When he’s not kidnapping schoolgirls or raping other men’s brides he’s chortling insanely. Director Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day) doesn’t do much more than skim the rotten surface of Saddam’s Iraq, circa 1987, but it’s enough to send us away with a bellyache. A genuine curiosity. Ludivine Sagnier costars as Uday’s favorite concubine (108 min.)
